Things are bad in Jerusalem. Not since the second Palestinian uprising have things been this tense. A Palestinian drove into a group of Israeli soldiers and the resulting clashes made their way into Al-Aqsa mosque. Increased settlement building is adding to the pressure.
After two weeks of peaceful protests in Pakistan over Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, clashes broke out in Islamabad leaving 3 dead and hundreds injured.

HEBRON (Ma’an) — Israeli forces shot and seriously injured a Palestinian child during clashes near Hebron on Sunday, medics said.
Hazim al-Shalalda, the directer of al-Mizan hospital, told Ma’an that 11-year-old Moheyeddin Salah Idriss was shot in the chest with a live bullet during the clashes.
The boy is currently in a coma and undergoing a complex medical procedure, al-Shalalda said.
Moheyeddin was shot during clashes near Kiryat Arba settlement east of Hebron, where protesters threw rocks and Israeli soldiers fired live bullets and tear gas at Palestinians.
An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was looking into the incident.
